I'm now the proud owner of a StudioLive AR12 USB-C. I'm also a blind person and I'm really amazed by the usability of this mixing system. All buttons, switches, faders and connectors are well organized and it's easy to find what we want. I appreciate the fact that I almost don't need a sighted help all the time to check pick level meters as it is easy to set up things only by touching the orientation of buttons and switches. I would have appreciated some audible indications while using the integrated recorder though.
To be able to use my new mixing system to its full potential, I've installed Capture 3 and unfortunately, most crucial parts of the GUI are not usable with my screen reader called NVDA. I cannot use the tab or arrow keys to review the main screen item (list of sessions and/or track within a session) and the option dialog is not browsable using the keyboard only. It seems to be the same for other dialogs like "save tracks".
This mixing system may be appreciated by many other visually impaired users because of its usability. Could you please consider reworking Capture's interface a bit so we can use it?

I'm running a Lenovo PC with Windows 10
Thanks for this product and thanks in advance for any answer.
